Going to bat against your fleas in Garland, Plano, Richardson & Rowlett

dallas flea controlFleas are a common parasite found around the Dallas area. A common misconception about fleas is that you need to have pets for an infestation to occur. Unfortunately, you can get fleas even if you don’t own pets. This is because fleas can be introduced to a yard in a variety of ways if other pests like rats, rabbits or gophers are present. You can also bring them home by walking through an infested park. Flea eggs can attach to the bottom of your shoes or you could have a couple hitch a ride with you during an evening walk.dallas flea pest controlFleas are notoriously difficult to get rid of because of their 4 stage life cycle. There are no pesticides on the market that can eliminate eggs, so pest professionals have to wait for the eggs to hatch before fleas are exposed to the growth regulators and pesticide. It is very important to prepare before a flea service by vacuuming all carpeted surfaces and scheduling flea baths for pets during the time your home is being treated. Vacuuming will trigger the flea eggs in carpets to hatch because fleas are attracted to the heat and movement of the vacuum. Once your pets are treated, they will not reintroduce fleas to the house.

The Flea Life Cycle

dallas flea control professionals

A flea has a 4 stage life cycle; egg, larva, pupa and adult.
An adult flea can drop hundreds of eggs in its short life span. Each egg will hatch and breed within a few days, repeating the life cycle. This is why many Texas home owners struggle treating fleas on their own. They rarely take into account that fleas will bury their eggs in carpets and fabric around the house. Bug bombs don’t always penetrate the areas fleas congregate and if your pets or yard aren’t being treated at the same time, fleas will hitch a ride back inside.

Flea Control Protection Plans

If your pets are scratching and you’re noticing other indicators of a flea infestation, we’re here to help. We’ll start by inspecting and determining the source of the infestation. Once that’s determined, we will treat the exterior of the home with a broadcast spray. The spray will include a low toxicity, low odor pesticide that will penetrate your lawn and loose soil where fleas lay eggs. We will also recommend an indoor treatment of all carpeted areas. The interior treatment will include a growth regulator and adulticide. These products will prevent the eggs that hatch after service from breeding and leaving new eggs. The products used indoors are low odor, low toxicity and used in accordance to the label. We typically request that you leave during service so as not to slip on damp surfaces. This is usually the perfect time to take any pets into the vet or groomer for a flea bath.

Many clients are concerned about the use of pesticide products indoors. Rest assured that all products used indoors are specifically labeled for indoor use. If you have any questions about our products, please call today to speak with our pest professionals.
